for the rest of your life. what are we asking them to do? assad is not giving up. >> first of all, chris, it's not up to us. we can express our opinion. this is part of this problem that it's somehow america's capability and responsibility to resolve these things. look, i wish that we could go into a lot of these places and make things work well. i wish we could bring democracy and peace but i wish i could eat more and not gain weight and i have found that when i act in unrealistic wishes, the results are not so good. the answer is we can voice our opinion. i guess what we ought to encourage ask a deal whereby people like that who are in power can leave, not because they're good people but because the alternative is them fighting to stay, but my basic point is that in any case, we vont got a lot to say about it. and you have this notion -- well, look, here is my disagreement with president obama on this one issue because i think he does an extraordinarily good job and i'm very supportive. he says america is the indispensable nation. by which they mean we have to be everywhere there's trouble
